    bass player is back next friday so i guess after that we can finally jam! we'll both be going away in early august but we have a 2/3 week window in which to do something until then. i think practice rooms will end up costing £10/15 per person depending on what time and what day we choose. the particular practice room i know is around elephant and castle but there are also decent ones in denmark st apparently. anything up your way?

    yeh sydenham is pretty far. i think a rehearsal room would be better. there's a good one near me, reasonably cheap too but that depends if you wana come all the way to kennington/elephant n castle area....if not one in central london will do (there's some on berwick st which i hear are good). unfortunately however i'm going away on tuesday till the 1st july then my bassist will also be away till mid july-ish. i'll check it out with him but we'll probably have to postpone till about then, sorry!! is your drummer buddy still interested? we're still proper up for a jam though, no fear. my dad's band is playing on the 3rd july actually, i told rosemary but i hope you'd both be up for coming haha! i'll keep you updated on jam progress anyway, stay in touch!

    oh no! three times unlucky!! my bassist friend was living in uxbridge until he had to move outta his house so now we're both in south (me camberwell, him sydenham). we could do something down this way as he might have space to practice. however it is pretty far. unless your place is free, we would probably still have to rent a practice room somewhere it's easy for all of us to reach. on the good side, drums can be had with a practice room. on the bad side it costs money.....lemme know what you wana do, my friend and i are reasonably flexible on weekends/evenings.

    great stuff! i've done two exams and have two to go. will be finished as i said in early june. my bassist is really psyched for the jam! i'm looking forward to it too actually, nothing like a good old jam session! well back to reading about arab nationalism, keep me updated!

    I will have to check that rapper out. must be good if he battled eminem, who, despite what everyone says, is an awesome rapper. oh Sonic Youth were amazing!!! I was grinning like a maniac all the way through, I don't think I've ever been that excited at a gig before. I couldn't believe i was seeing them live in such an intimite venue! they pulled out a few classics which were stunning and my ears were not merely ringing afterwards but were in actual physical pain but man, sooooo good!! i wouldn't insist on a drumkit coz i know they're a pain in the arse to sort out but it would be good if there was one just in terms of sound and knowing what can be done. if it's not possible then forget it though, guitars and bass noise is cool too.

    yeh BB king!! was amazing to see such a legend live...i think i was 13 or something and it was my second gig ever but to see the guy that influenced practically every rock guitarist in the world was just awesome. i was watching him trying to comprehend that hendrix was inspired by this guy. great stuff!! and now this monday i'm going to see sonic youth!!!!!!!! i can't believe it...i'm so excited that i don't know how to act so i'm just being normal. you dont have to learn anything of mine, i think just going in for a jam and seeing what happens will be cool enough. by the by does anyone have a basement in which we can do it or something? otherwise we'll havta pay for practice rooms which can be quite pricey...

    i imagine the beat poets and jazz had a lot in common in terms of improvisation and spontanaity at least. all this stream of consciousness stuff is so interesting. i really wana explore that more in rock. that's why i love sonic youth and CAN etc. and with my own music i want to hit that balance between accessible and experimental (radiohead do that well, so do verdena). at the moment my songs are way too pop which is the basis of the former two bands but they also throw in twists and turns which keep up the interest and artistry. and i think those elements come from some ineffable spontaneity. it's like that dada sound poetry but not quite as extreme. groupings of words or notes can mean more if you don't think about them than if you do...haha can't wait to jam now!

    interesting stuff is poetry n jazz. what are you gonna argue? i like looking at that mixed media stuff, tis why sonic youth are one of my faves (as well as their guitar playing). but how can you not like jazz music!? i'm not a massive fan but there's enough which is great. here's an uncondescending list: in a silent way by miles davies (inspired can and talk talk in the way it sounded and was recorded), a love supreme by john coltrane, sunday at the village vanguard by bill evans and vienna concert by keith jarret are a few off the top of my head which are well worth checking out. my bass player friend is well up for jammage so there's no reason why we shouldn't get together.

    ahh thanks for takin the time to read my blog!! a couple of those were written as features for my uni paper including the dada one which was really fun to write. i hate 1500 word essays yet for a 1500 music piece it doesn't seem as hard....hmm...also glad you like that petrol emotion, they are good and i'm not just saying that. live they're really good. 2nd only to the stupidly awesome my bloody valentine last year at electric picnic fest. i would indeed be interested in meeting a drummer, i do know a good bassist already tho. i'm sure we could jam in summer, 2 guitarists would be ideal. hold that thought! i finish in very early june and am planning on not being in london over summer but we should defo get a rehearsal studio if one of you're drummer mates is also up for it...

    indeed that petrol emotion. do you know them? very underrated. i can see the attraction of the beirut guy, he is leading a life i want to lead - travelling france and eastern europe and experiencing the culture/arts (i assume) whilst making money. i play guitar and drums but in that particular gig i was on the guitar which was fun. i have a stockpile of my own songs too but i need a drummer coz they songs are very in need of a band right now. i hope you know neu! i love my krautrock (CAN are the greatest!) but neu's influence on post-punk and even punk itself is crazy. check out neu 75, seriously. it was only 1975 and that punk sound was there already, being peddled by germans. shocking.

    wow impressive absence. not much has been up i must say although i've discovered a few great bands - gang of four, mission of burma, beirut, the dodos, interpol...oh the list goes on. i've been busy! now it's revision time and consequently less music listening (i cannot concentrate if there's music playing). how's your dissertation going? rosemary came to a gig i played last weel and i asked if you were alive then she realised you might have liked the music - instrumental jamming. next time though. how're you??

    Seema has introduced me to spotify! I chanced across dark was the night... its great! I'm probably going to have to buy it now, I want it on my iPod...

    my knowledge of other trends is dubious....i know that crackly, dark, esoteric acoustic music will always find a place in indie kids hearts (beach house are on my downloads folder now....) however the music scene is insanely fickle and i'm certain that the mp3 has destroyed the way we listen to music as a whole anyway despite my pride and joy being my ipod. i'm loving M83 right now though, they along with fleet foxes had one of the best albums of 2008. i interviewed the singer after seeing their church gig which was pretty cool. they're quite shoegazey....next year i promise to keep more up to date with music. your dissertation sounds very interesting; may i read it when it's done? i know nothing about post punk but it's a genre i'm willing to explore...isn't it stuff like pere ubu, television, gang of four and wire?

    what i shoulda said is 'dubstep is the future of dance music'. that's what i meant. yeah it can be difficult reviewing utter nonsense or stuff you're just ambivalent to but you get used to using non commital descriptions and phrases to avoid any sort of vitriolic bias against them. in fact it helped me as an interviewer because i was never starstruck so by the time i interviewed anyone i actually like i had nailed my technique on bands i'd never heard of/didn't like. in terms of music books i'm really loving bring the noise by simon reynolds - i like his idea projection onto music. it kinda unravels possible motivations and meanings of music like mythologies by barthes. also nice socio political contexts. i also like ian mcdonald, he wrote a great book called the people's music about the 60s/70s with an amazing nick drake article at the end. lester bangs is also awesome. im looking for more though, might check out nick kent and the guy you mentioned whose name i cant check now...

    dubstep is the way forward. incidentally i went to a dubstep night called forward where benga was playing and it was awesome - stupidly loud bass pulsing through your being. oooh yeh! i do some music journalism myself which explains how i got to interview verdena, the link to one place i write for is on my homepage here, it's mostly metal but you gotta start somewhere. i'm also editor of music at my uni paper (ya i'm a student!) and i've written a few things for them too. i spose that's the career i'm most likely to follow even though music journo's earn peanuts. at least it's creative and you can freelance....i checked out low. are they a slowcore band? because if they are i didn't like them and would recommend the far superior bedhead instead. but i have a feeling i listened to the wrong band...whats the best book about music you've read?

  • Liam108

    hehe remember it's spelt verdena or you won't find anything about them! my profile pic is of me interviewing the singer/guitarist actually! because they're unknown over here i got to meet them when they played in london!! i've heard of planb actually. i'm interested in checking it out. is it subscription only? i like reading good music writing - i have lester bangs' and simon reynolds books so planb sounds like my kinda thang. this metal band i saw recently (stunning live) called the ocean have craploads of literary references in their music actually - nietszche, arthur rimbaud, baudelaire and comte de lautréamont. probably worth a look altho it's kinda pretentious. also nick cave or so i hear....being an indiephile have you heard of blitzen trapper? and do you like any dubstep?

    25 nov 2008 Svara
  • Liam108

    i dont know if the decemberists have many literary references in their stuff but they're certainly a bookish band. as for verdena, they're an italian band and the best thing i've heard for ages. i love them too much. amazing live as well! i think indielectual is a good name for those pretentious twats as much as i like their writing. their top albums of the 90s list is awesome but the 70s one is so dodgy. anyone who says low is bowie's best album is a moron. anyone who says low is the best album of the 70s needs a good backhand slap in the mouth. it would however be pretty easy for me to stray down that route because i'm as opinionated and elitist in terms of music as any of them....oh dear....
